Intelligent Data Sets Accelerating Deployment of ISO15926

Realizing Open Information Interoperability

The Proteus Project

The Proteus project is the next phase of the original Matrix 1,2,3 project to provide ISO15926 data exchange of intelligent P&ID data between vendor systems, exchange of data between different vendors P&IDs and 3D models and exchange of data between different vendors 3D models.

The Matrix 1,2,3 project culminated in a demonstration at the April 2009 FIATECH conference in Las Vegas by 9 vendors showing exchange of data using an XML file transport that satisfied all 3 data exchanges. During the Matrix 1,2,3 project several items were acknowledged as being necessary to provide commercial, robust software solutions to the Process and Power industries but were shelved due to the time constraint of the conference.

The Proteus project is working to resolve these items and to enable software vendors to upgrade their commercial systems to support them. Items in scope are:

1) Handling User Defined Attributes in the source and target systems – how to formalise the approach taken.

2) Graphical Symbols – formalise the approach for inline or use of a symbol library.

3) Symbol libraries, Cats and specs, and their inter-relationship.

4) Company's standards on import.

5) Validate class names in payload (files or others) against RDL on export and/or import. 6) Multi-document import and export.

7) Formalise the modelling of annotation items for both dumb annotation and those which are a representation of information of a model item along with the association with the model items they relate to.

8) Status management.

9) Deletion.

10) Standardized methodology for mapping between ISO 15926 and other standards.

11) Methodology for mapping ISO 15926 Dictionary Compliant XML representation to part 8 and vice versa.

12) Preserving multiple products system data during a round-trip of payload.

The documents developed by the project, defining the model for P&ID and 3D along with the Schema can be downloaded from this page.
